Sunday morning, many Mifflin residents were "miffed" by the presence of some unexpected help in their clean–up efforts.

"It's been kinda fun. There were a couple people who were kinda comin' outta their place with garbage bags and we said, 'Hey, head back in, go to sleep, take a shower, do whatever you wanna do. We'll take care of the cleanup process for you,'" says Matt Metzger from Blackhawk Church.

An email generated by the members of Madison's Blackhawk Church solicited people who were willing to rise rather early Sunday morning to contribute to the cleaning.

About 45 people showed up along Mifflin around seven a.m., hoping to surprise residents when they awoke.

This marks the first time church members have coordinated such an event. They call it a practical way to show people God loves them.
